How can I reduce shaving rash?

I've read the previous threads on shaving, and got some useful tips, but my query is slightly different. I use an electric shaver, specifically this one. What product can I use with it to help reduce the redness and irritation? I've tried the recommended Nivea products, and while they do make the shaver glide easier, I still get the irritation.

Razor bumps

What do you recommend to get rid of razor bumps? Products, shaving techniques, whatever. We're talking about shaving a face here, although I am under the impression it's the same issue with legs/pits.

Help me lessen my shaving frequency.

I hate shaving! Thankfully I don't have the same problem as some other men which requires me to shave every day, but even at every second day it's a hassle. Is there anything simple I can do to slow my facial hair growth so that I need only shave, say, once a week at most?

How can I teach myself to shave?

I'm a 23-year-old guy who's never used a real razor to shave -- I've only ever used electrics. (Why? Because I'm a pussy and can't bear to think about cutting myself.) I've recently started to think that the electric shave is less than ideal, and that proper shaving would be a good life skill to have. Of course, it'd be a little awkward to ask Dad to show me how like everybody else, since I'm not thirteen and he's in another state. How can I teach myself to use a razor without causing myself grievous injury? What kind of razor gives me the smallest chance of cutting myself? Am I ridiculous for even asking about this?

Minimizing Beard Mess

FaceFurFilter 4.0:

I have a full beard and have been leaving sinks full of offerings for the Shaven Yak for about 15 years now. I never really worried about clean up too much (I did it, just didn't worry about it). However, it's starting to annoy me in my old age, and I was wondering if any of my Bewhiskered Brethren have any tips to share on minimizing the mess.

I turn 30 in two weeks. About two years ago, I went from only having to shave a couple of times a week, to shaving every day (or I look like a mountain man). I've also started growing great amounts of hair on my back (ick!), where there was none before.

Is this sudden burst of hormones (I almost want to call it "second puberty") normal for guys going through middle age? I'm just much harier than I was two years ago, and nothing else has changed.

Electric Razors

I've decided to finally take the plunge and switch to an electric razor (mainly due to laziness). There are so many options I don't really know where to begin. I don't have much facial hair so I don't need anything ultra powerful (I don't think?). Any recommendations?

Should I grow a neckbeard?

My shaving inevitably irritates or cuts my neck, even though I only shave at most every other day. I'm thinking about letting it grow into a neckbeard to supplement the Amish look I currently have. Is this merely mildly detestable or an all-out wrong? I'm not looking for shaving tips.
